Rooms were nice. Cost was fair. There is very friendly ambience to the hotel. The location is fabulous. There are many things to see in the area - museums, gardens, wineries, historical sites - and it would probably take a good month to do them justice.

Room is good. Clean, comfortable and good value for money. Rating was moved DOWN by the reception which left such a bad taste in our mouths we had trouble getting past it. As we entered the gentleman checking in ahead of us was being dressed down for having booked through Expedia..... I assume the "clerk" must have been the owner(?)... More

I'm sorry you thought I was the evil receptionist, The guest in front of you was in no means being dressed down, he had asked some specific questions about Expedia and I answered them truthfully, and I'm sure no face was made when you checked in. It is a shame we all assume the worst never giving anyone a chance.... More

See title! We had a weather-related issue that required additional towels ( I mean LOTS) and they pitched right in to make it better. Also, breakfast is served in tables with table cloths and real china and flatware...a very nice touch in this plastic and paper plate world.

We stayed one night in the king suite for our anniversary. It was very romantic, with a large jacuzzi tub and a fireplace. The room was clean and quiet. The staff at the front desk were friendly and efficient. The king suite is well worth the upgrade price. And best of all, it is in Chadds Ford, within reach of... More

We stayed for just one night, but the hotel was nice and in a quiet location. The beds were comfortable and the room clean although it is an older hotel. The lady working the desk when we checked in was super friendly and helpful. She offered us tea and fresh baked cookies and made sure our room was ok and... More

After an unexpected family problem, I had to cancel my reservation for 2 nights. The manager could not have been any nicer to me and promptly refunded me. I can't wait to reschedule for a 2 night stay here!

We had the king suite with jacuzzi. Quite, clean, and had no problems. Good waffles and fresh fruit for breakfast. Good location away from the busy part of town and centrally located to area sites. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Unfortunately we had to attend a memorial service in Delaware but had always wanted to visit Chadds Ford, PA and so we thought it would lift our spirits if we planned an extra day and so we stayed at Brandywine River Hotel which is so centrally located in the area. We had a spacious room, the front desk and hotel... More

Centrally located to Wyeth tours, Brandywine Art Museum, vineyards, restaurants, and Longwood Gardens. Old interior but perfectly pleasant. Next door to Brandywine Prime where I had a 4-star meal. I highly recommend this hotel if you are tired of corporate, impersonal chains. Reasonably priced, too. My only concern would be for people who have allergies. Because the carpets and drapes...
